that uses drugs is an addict, and not necessarily everybody who uses drugs needs to have treatment. but having said that, people that we often come in contact with will be people who have a severe drug abuse problem and generally they also have a mental health issue problem, there are often housing problems, employment, many other problems, and that's the population we deal with often. and i think that figuring a way to have an intervention so that services are available for those that need it i think is really important. i don't necessarily agree a felony conviction is the vehicle to do so, but i think we have to make sure that as we lower the sanctions here, that we do have the tools and that we have the ability to distinguish between people that have a drug addiction problem, people that are using drugs recreationally and otherwise are a functional person. >> we're going to be taking audience questions shortly, so if you have a question, just try to get the attention of someone in the aisles. ethan, let me ask you this. you know, in california, there are a number of offenses, dr

liquidity concerns in the market martin schultz is with us. thanks for joining us. is this a sign of things to come, a big standoff with japan? >> well, it's rather surprising that a hopeful government coming in is picking a fight with the bank of japan when they're starting off. what is happening here is that it seems that the ldp doesn't really have a growth strategy right now and the frustration in industry with the strong yen and slowdown in export is tremendous about that. >> big problems if we have unfettered money printing. would there be as he also says 30 years of deflation? >> well, one of the lessons we have here is that many different monetary policies didn't work so far. we still have an economy that is in restructuring mode with many corporations. so sony, sharp, still trying to get back on their feet. on the other hand, we also have an economy that is slinging simply by aging and what would be needed would be strong growth policies and this is what the bank of japan will be pushing when he's in office. on the other hand, deflation is there, printing more yen might be helping
the disputes should not be internationalized, an indirect reference to the united states. u.s. president barack obama and chinese premier wen jiabao held bilateral talks before the summit began on tuesday. they both seek closer ties with southeast asian countries as part of their competing regional strategies. >> it's important that our two countries cooperate to build a more secure and prosperous future for the asia-pacific region and for the world. >> despite their friendly words, both sides took their differences with them to the east asia summit. obama called on the country's concern to quickly draw up the code of conduct. one indirectly said the united states should not be involved, stating that the disputes should not be internationalized. now, obama's trip to asia is a sign that america's so-called pivot to asia strategy remains unchanged after his re-election. his visit to myanmar was criticized by some observers. they say it was premature. obama went ahead anyway, a signal of his desire to increase u.s. influence in southeast asia and keep china's ambitions in check. nhk world's matthe
of international efforts to mediate a truce between israel and hamas. u.s. secretary general ban ki moon is lending his support. >> my message is clear. all sides must avoid fire. further escalating the situation will put the entire region at risk. >> our leaders, he traveled to jerusalem with talks -- to talk with benjamin netanyahu. he condemned the attacks and the loss of civilian lives in gaza. netanyahu reiterated that they would be willing to are dissipate in a ceasefire but only if hamas immediately sees as the rocket attacks. >> the long-term solution to be put in place through diplomatic means and israel then would be a willing partner to such a solution, but if kroger military action through the necessary to stop the constant barrage of rockets, israel will not hesitate to do what is necessary to defend our people. >> there are signs that diplomatic efforts may be bearing fruit and mediators iran optimistic that a deal can be made to avert an israeli ground offensive. >> -- mediator's remained optimistic. >> what is the reaction to reports of a ceasefire? >> people don't really believe it
in the middle east. here are the numbers. you can also find us online. you can tweet us @cspanwj. facebook.ee spoc here is the have one of the washington post. secretary clinton will travel to the middle east as israel always risky choices on and gaza. clinton will travel to the middle east today to discuss ongoing violence in gaza according to white house officials she will talk with leaders in jerusalem, ramallah and cairo. issues leading the east asia summit that president obama is an app. the death toll in the gaza strip surpassed 100 on monday. with evidence that an egyptian a truce is in the side. ben rose, the deputy national security adviser for strategic administration at the white house says clinton and obama have been talking about this threat to the trip. -- throughout the trip. they discussed the way forward. they concluded the best way to the dance discussions with leaders is for secretary clinton to take this trip beginning with our close partner, israel. and clinton's middle east talks do not include hamas leaders. they say the secretary will not meet with hamas, that state
and the press. if i use the word twilight to suggest that network news, as we have known it, is on its way out and as something new is emerging. whether what is new will satisfy the urgent needs of our democracy cannot be noted at this time. let's hope that it will. without a free and occasionally rambunctious media, we will not be living in an open society. the free press and an open society are intimately linked, one dependent on the other. network news -- if network news is in its twilight, then perhaps our democracy is facing a turning point as well. i asked an old colleague and a friend, ted koppel, to discuss the changes in network news and what those changes might mean for our society. ted is known best for his 25 years of anchor and host of nightline, but he has also been a foreign correspondent, a war correspondent, and author, and he has covered many political campaigns. i shared something in preparing with this -- for this program. i ran into the following interesting thought. ted joined abc news in 1963. i joined cbs in 1957. if my arithmetic is right, together we represent more th
, broadcast news has been outflanked and overtaken by scores of other media options. help us understand the perceived need for these changes because they not only affect the quality of network news, by the way, do you agree with me that it is in the twilight zone a? >> it is in a twilight. but remember, twilight is usually followed by night and then don follows night. i am still hopeful. you know, it is not going to stay this way forever. i think, you know, what tends to happen in this country as you and i have observed over the last 50 or 60 years, we tend to go too far to the right, and then we correct course and passed through the middle and go too far to the left, and then we correct course again i think what is happening to broadcast journalism requires a course correction. as we come to realize that our educational system is not as good as we like to believe, that our health care system is not as good as we like to believe, that we are spending -- i mean, there are so many things that are on the brink of taking us into real disaster. not the least of them being the possibility of
forces claiming to have targeted 100 gaza sites. the u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton is on her way to the middle east for talks with officials in a bid to try to end the deadly crisis. we've been watching oil prices, as well. and after sharp gains yesterday, you can see oil prices pulling back about 27 cents, still just about $89 for wti crude. we will have a live report from our nbc colleagues on the ground in the middle east coming up in the next half hour. >>> let's talk about some of the main market events of the morning. actually today fed chairman ben bernanke's speech at the economics sclub of new york is coming up at 12:15 eastern time. traders will be listening no any comments on the central bank's operation twist program and discussions about changing how the fed communicates about interest rates. operation twist expires next month. and there is some speculation the fed will continue making asset purchases by expanding the size of its $40 billion a month quantitate of it easing program. also on the economic agenda today, october housing starts released at 8:30 a.m. an
and tax increases, hitting every single american taxpayer right in the wallet. it's not just us but get hit hard, amid all the uncertainty, companies are scaling back their investment plans. according to "the wall street journal", u.s. companies are cutting their spending plans in the fiscal and economic uncertainty, and doing so at the fastest pace in the a recession. it goes on to say that companies are not planning to spend this year or next year. i am joined by jeffrey miron. welcome back to the show, jeffrey. good to see you. i want to start with some breaking news that we had. moody's just announced that they are cutting france's government rating to aa from triple-a. the s&p da back did it back in january. of course, we mentioned last week that the eurozone is in recession. economies that are expanding and not contracting. is this a winning post for people in this country who can't seem to get our spending under control? >> i think it should be a warning. the entire situation should be a wake-up call. but even in europe, they are not recognized in the wake-up call. they are not d
has departed heading for the middle east. we begin with christiane. welcome. give us a sense of this new announcement from israel. how long do you think israel is waiting to silt on this halt before it would move forward with sending ground troops in? >> well, what was reported was that a senior government official in the loop close to the talks has confirmed to me this morning that after the latest intense round of conversations and meetings between prime minister netanyahu and his inner security cabinet, which went on into the early morning hours here jerusalem time, there has been a decision taken to hold on the ground offensive. to give time, he says, limited time to make the diplomatic solution work. that is their preferred option. however, he also adds that israeli military is prepared and continues to make its preparations in case, if and when, a decision is taken to escalate to a ground war. in that case the military would be prepared to react immediately. but clearly what we're hearing and what we've been reporting over the last 24 to 36 hours is that despite the fac
that the employer can use. now, i grant this isn't just a skills training program, but you've got to know how to write, to speak, to think. and i think a lot of our problem is that we graduate many students that don't necessarily do that well. and if the humanity majors, and they do not do that especially well, then they have got trouble. so, and they can't necessarily prove they do those things will. earlier someone said, i think you, jim, talked about the need for computer skills. my guess is that if the humanities majors, major really helped some sort of certification, that showed certain skills. i think that we haven't fully grappled with how to deal with our desire, our feeling that we need to have the humanities as a critical part of the university, we need to have the numbers, students take these. we believe that but we haven't grappled with how we can get these folks jobs. they are not going to get at the big corporations and less they have very good grades. and we can't necessarily, so far, it's not easy for them to establish they have the skills, especially if they don't have those
important instrument for us, and we'll be using that at some point, at the appropriate time, to begin to tighten monetary policy. now, you're talking about the other direction, why not just cut it to zero, pay no interest on excess reserves, and thereby, get more accommodation? well, it's something we've considered repeatedly, and we continue to consider, and i don't rule it out as an action in the futtre, what we do is the following. if we were to cut the interest rate from 25 basis points to 0 #, our estimate is it affects short term interest rates, like overnight rates, on the order of eight or nine basis points, extremely small amount, in turn, having a smaller effect on loans like housing loans or auto loans ect.. the stimulated agent -- act of that action is small, but on the other hand, the concerns we've had or some have had is that if there is no return on institutions, money market funds, repo markets and so on could be liquid because there's little incentive to act in the markets when interests pay zero, why not just hold cash or fallow reserves? so the concern is that, per
. >> thank you for joining us. i'm in the tv biz where it's all about the demographics. the demo we call it. i work hard to appeal to the millenials, for example, by calling them millenials. young people love to be target marketed by their birthdate and marketing power. >> you know "gangnam style." no idea what that means but they eat it up. that's right. that's why i stay up on all of the hottest millennial trends. right now there is nothing that 18 to 34 love more than soup player. you need proof. let me school on america's hottest liquid food trend. campbell's go the new youth skewing line of soups made especially for millenials. that's right. every american generation is defined by one thing. the greatest generation stopped hitler. the baby boomers stopped the vietnam war. this generation will go in history for demanding different soup. >> according to the company, campbell's go is a new line of soups designed for people like you. fun, busy. youngish. i think this marketing campaign is greatish. these hey these cans of soup can't get any more dope. they come in a bag now. yeah. look at
not work with netanyahu, it's interesting to see them work on a peace deal. >> nice to have you with us, dana, as always. >>> "newsroom" with carol costello begins right now. see you back here tomorrow morning. hey, carol. >>> good morning. thank you so much for being with me. i'm carol costello. we begin with breaking news. a possible cease fire about to take hold in the israel/gaza conflict. the news comes from egypt's president, trying to broker a truce. minutes ago he declared that israel will soon halt its air strikes on gaza. along egypt's border with gaza, reza sayeh. tell us more. >> reporter: we don't want to jump to conclusions. we should be very cautious. there are growing signs from where we are standing in egypt that there could a closing in on a truce or cease fire. latest sign is a statement made by egyptian president mohamed morsi, according to state tv. he said that, quote, israeli gra aggression would end on tuesday. that, of course, is today. that's consistent with similar statements we've heard from other officials late last night. we spoke with a senior egyptian off
of -- used interchangeably. if the dividing line is famous not have a nuclear weapon and then it will become nearly impossible to manage because that means they can continue to enrich plutonium at three levels that define nuclear capability, delivery systems, instrument capability, and warheads. the delivery systems are not a subject of negotiation. the question is whether the enrichment capability gets eliminated. drawing a line at the weapons, the warhead development is not meaningful because from richmond to weapon, and our intelligence capability on that subject is so limited. negotiations are going on. the fact of bilateral negotiation between iran and the united states is a matter of grave concern to the sunni arab -- iranian nuclear capability, totally eliminated, where negotiations seem to be going, to establish some line beyond and richmond will not take place and the conventional wisdom and that is if you permission and richmond beyond a 5% level you are close to a military enrichment capability. so to negotiate with iran, and secondly, how do you handle the enrichment problem? on
very much. we appreciate it. both come back soon. that does it for us. make sure to join us tomorrow. >>> good morning. welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm melissa lee with carl quintanilla, jim cramer and david faber live from the new york stock exchange. let's get straight to our top story. a bombshell involving hewlett packard sending stocks down sharply. david broke the story. he has details. >> hewlett packard out with quarterly earnings this morning but the real story is part of that earnings release allegation the company was the victim of a massive fraud when i purchased a u.k. company, $11.1 billion deal that closed in october of last year. hp has taken 8.8 billion write-down on autonomy and 5 billion due to serious improprieties and misrepresentations and disclosure failures that occurred prior to its purchase by hewlett packard. in other words, it's fraud. after autonomy's founder and ceo michael lynch was fired by meg whitman, sources close to the company tell me a senior executive from autonomy came forward with evidence of widespread accounting misrepresentations tha
from us and we will be using that at some point, at the appropriate time to begin to tight monetary policy. now, you're talking about the other direction, why don't we just cut it to zero, pay no interest on excess reserves and there thereby, get a little more accommodation? it is something we have considered repeatedly, i don't rule it out as an action in the future. the cost benefit analysis we have done in looking at it, starting where we are at 25 basis points is the following. if we cut -- if we were to cut that it interest rate from 25 basis points to zero, our estimate is that it would affect very short-term interest rates, like overnight rates by something on the order of eight or nine basis points, extremely small amount. and that, in turn, would have even a smaller effect on the interest rate wes care about like the rates on auto loans or houses, et cetera. so the stimulative effect of that action, while going in the right direction, we assess as being very, very small. on the other side you can the concern we have, or at least some have had, is that if there is no return

. good to have you with us. here is what we have today. czech republic. why the church is waiting for compensation. france, how a famous culinary delight has caused a big controversy. and poland, why you should never drink and drive very or even cycle. >> when the iron curtain fell, the countries of eastern europe had to redefine the relationship between church and state. under communist rule, there was little tolerance for organized religion in church property and land was expropriated wholesale. today, the czech republic was one of the last former soviet satellites where the church has still not received compensation. >> the father believes in god's grace period during his daily prayers, he also praised for the church in the czech republic. as a good christian, he knows one should never abandon hope for a miracle, but as a priest in the czech republic, he has. >> i believe in miracles. our father in heaven can do anything. when i look at the situation in the czech republic and the government, i don't see much of a chance. there is no miracle in sight. >> and merkel is needed soo
